Do you have a high school student in your family? The purpose of this blog post is to coordinate news that is specific to you.
AP Exams are being moved online. The following was taken from the AP website:
Your health and safety are our top priorities. We know the coronavirus has created new and unexpected challenges. Here’s how the AP Program is supporting you and your school:
- We’re providing live and on-demand AP courses for free.
- We’re developing a new at-home testing option.
Based on the number and length of school closures, it’s clear that the usual way AP Exams are given at schools won’t be possible.
Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be two different testing dates. The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing information will be available by April 3.

There is so much uncertainty right now. We are praying for our families as they navigate these times with their students, especially our high school seniors.
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm 46:1-3
